“That sole experience reinforced to me just how valuable and timeless that album was and why I feel compelled to give that gift of tangible memories to my couples”
With so much focus these days on digital storage. There are all sorts of suggestions out there: cloud, flash drive, photo storage companies. It can leave you feeling like you need backups of our backups and then backups of them!
But what good is a stored photo that you don’t ever see?
Whether you remember the days of film or not, there’s an important message to be learned from those days: that is, we didn’t focus on storing our negatives in multiple ways and multiple formats in multiple devices. The focus was actually on the photographs, sharing them with those around you and having them on display as a reminder of a moment in time passed.
“Your photos will have more meaning and value for the people who are not in them.”
Over the years I've discovered and learned that when I photograph my clients, I know those photos I take are not only for the clients, on many occasions those photos will have more meaning for the people who are not in them. The true beauty of a printed image means we could all reach out and physically touch something that represents someone we love, we lost or something we cherish frozen in time forever, never to age and never to be forgotten.
“While ever your photos remain in a digital form they are not really a photograph, they are just a series of 1’s and 0’s waiting to be turned into a photograph, but the scariest thing of all is, eventually your devices will fail and you’ll lose those memories.”
